Plant Features

Handwriting on the Wall Hemerocallis is like adding a work of art to your garden! Hues of peach, wine and yellow blend together in a watercolor effect. Plants bloom profusely in early summer and will re-bloom sporadically until frost. A vigorous grower with a strong bud count. Daylilies are tough perennials that can survive less than ideal conditions including poor, dry soil, slopes, and planting under Black Walnut trees. Foliage can be cut back to the ground in early fall. Handwriting on the Wall ships as a bare root. We like growing from bare roots because they establish quickly, become twice the size of a potted plant in the first season, and eliminate the need for plastic pots (a win for the environment).

Common Names: day lilies, daylily, day lily

Hemerocallis Companion Plants: Crocosmia, Geranium, Grasses, Nepeta

Handwriting on the Wall Hemerocallis Plant Care: Besides apply water if the plant starts looking droopy (which is practically never), there is not much else this plant needs. The flower stalks can be cut back after the plant is done blooming for the season. Dividing daylilies is not necessary unless you don't want them spreading. Division can be done in early fall when the foliage is being cut back to the ground.
